Not that I’m complaining, mind you …

September 12, 2007

but the word on the raise is … weird.

The guy in charge, let’s call him Treasurer because that’s how I think of him, has decided that it would be best to just send me one half of the total raise before January 1st. The other half would be sent after January 1st. Leaving aside the obvious vagueness of the whole thing, that’s one quarter of my salary in a lump sum UNTAXED.

Holy tax implications! I’d better hie me to the Benefits Office and hike up my pre-tax contributions for the rest of this year. I have no idea how much that’ll really help, but any little bit at this point is probably good.

    Well, more money is always a good thing, right?? So, this means you’ll have to pay taxes on that money yourself? I’ve had to do that before…it’s fine if you save for tax day.

    I <3 you. You said 'hie' in your blog and had proper usage. Most excellent!

  3. ~Ms. M&P~ Oh yes, indeedy, it is! I’d just hoped to keep more of it in my own pockets.

    ~Mapgirl~ I love the English language ever so much.
